Please see photo for explanation clarity.
I would like to start up my irrigation system, but cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong. I have the valve open in the basement leading to the "bell" you see in the photo. I have the valves that look like straight screw driver screw heads closed, the spigot valves are closed, the valves located in the valve boxes for the irrigation system are open.
When I open the valve with the blue handle which should allow water to pass into the irrigation system from the main, the water bubbles out of the top of the "bell."
I must not be opening the correct valves.
It's behaving as if the water goes into the irrigation lines, they fill up and then the water comes out of the overflow.
Could someone give me some assistance with getting my system charged back up?
Thank you in advance for the help.
